Guantanamo hunger striker claims guards threatened him

A Guantanamo prisoner who has been on a hunger strike for three years claims US guards recently threatened to kill him and took his legal papers, lawyers for the Saudi said Monday. Ahmed Zaid Zuhair told his lawyers a guard said "he will kill me and chop my body into pieces," while another said, "Don't kill him, but cut off his ears and his nose," according to a translated copy of the letter released by his attorneys. His lawyers filed the letter with a Washington court as part of a petition seeking the return of the seized legal documents and the right to speak with their client by phone.
